Tournaments are often considered very important to the complete development of a martial artist because they are the only areas in which an individual
can test his or her skill against others in a constructive and non-disruptive way. Students generally compete in 2-3 categories: forms, sparring, and breaking.
The Yale Tae Kwon Do Club competes in the Ivy-Northeast Collegiate Tae Kwon Do League (INCTL), a league comprising
eighteen schools in the northeaster United States. There is no breaking competition, but there is sparring and forms. We attend about four tournaments a year in addition to holding our own, traditionally in early April of each year.
